For example, you could take part in our summer community BBQ. Additionally, every year in the fall we organize a Welcome Day event that brings together the entire Francophone community in British Columbia to celebrate its diversity; it is an excellent opportunity to have fun and make new friends!
Volunteer. Volunteering is a great way to gain Canadian work experience, obtain references, get involved in your community and create a network for yourself.
We are always looking for volunteers to support us in various administrative projects or events; write us if you are interested in this opportunity.
You can also visit Volunteer.ca to search for volunteering opportunities in your community.
Social networks. There are a few very welcoming Facebook communities. This can be a good starting point to get answers to questions about everyday life (where to find the best baguette in town, for example) and maybe participate in group activities.
